Wow! Messing with Julio’s tools … again! Chuck just never learns it seems. He is a little like my wife there who still hasn’t understood how mad I get when she doesn’t put my tools back where she finds them. At least she is somewhat predictable and puts them all in the same spot (with HER tools) unlike Chuck who has a different idea each time.
Now be honest guys! Haven’t we all been there? Who can honestly say they have never “sampled” the loot of their kids or maybe tested a few candy items “just to make sure it’s ok” before you give it out for Halloween? I admit I’m guilty on both accounts!
Who of you have great Halloween candy stories? Let’s hear them!
Well, that’s a dead giveaway of course! It’s curious though, how, sometimes, you can actually realize you’re dreaming. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does it usually makes the experience that more fun, because you know you’re in for some entertainment without any real dangers or consequences.
This reminds me of the time when my brother cut into the muscle and tendon betwwen his thumb and index finger of his left hand. He must have been around 16 or 17 at that time and was working on his radio controlled model plane in the basement. Somehow he slipped with a cuttern knife and wham! cut himself right down to the bone. It took forever to heal. The whole situation wasn’t as funny as it looks in this comic strip though! So remember, kids: Be careful when handling tools!
Sorry for the delay with today’s strip guys! It seems the data center of our provider is locaded in Boston and experienced some difficulties because of the hurricane. Maybe a dolphin bit through some cables or something!
We keep our fingers crossed for everybody in the area! By what I’ve read in the papers so far Sandy has caused quite some devastation. Hope none of you are affected personally!
The weather sure became gloomy here today. I’m going to fire up the oven today for the first time this season and enjoy a comfortable evening in front of the fire. Damn, I feel lucky to be a a homo sapiens sapiens sometimes, with all the technology to my disposal! It would suck to have to be outside on days like these.
I can’t clearly remember when I first heard about Halloween, but it certainly wasn’t popular around these parts when I grew up. Nowadays it’s getting more and more common to have kids ring at your door and extort candy from you under threats of violence. I wonder, is Halloween a marketing scheme for sweets, or a recruiting event by organized crime to spot future talent for protection money operations? Anyway, this year I’ll have to get myself a mask to scare those little buggers! Or maybe I should go with Hans’ costume suggestion instead?
This week will be our Halloween Week here at Chicken Wings. We found ourselves talking about what seems to be Americas Biggest Holiday Event (even though it’s not an official holiday) and next thing we know, we had enough strips to do a whole week and send some more to our magazines as well.
Last year we couldn’t think of a single strip about Halloween. It’s always funny to me how you can’t force the creative juices.
So, Happy Halloween everybody!
It seems Julio doesn’t only have a knack for fixing airplanes, but also knows how to treat women and make them feel special!
Also, the Halloween Contest is still on until the end of the week!
Think up another punchline for the skeleton strip and post it in our forum!
